It has been a while since my last post, but I was living in Hatersville, USA.
I think it’s official that I will not be running the NYC Marathon. My hip is still bothering me, and I was pretty much told to let it rest for a couple more weeks. By the time it heals, there will not be much time to finish training. I believe we are 38/39 days away from the marathon. Oh, well I guess. Had I known this was going to happen, the hubby and I could have planned a longer Hawaiian vacation.
Oh, to stay on theme with Random Thursdays. Yeah, I know that it’s Friday. I have been noticing these random ass patches on my shoulders and back.
It turns out that I have tinea veriscolor.
Tinea versicolor is a common fungal infection of the skin. The fungus interferes with the normal pigmentation of the skin, resulting in small, discolored patches. These patches may be lighter or darker in color than the surrounding skin and most commonly affect the trunk and shoulders. Tinea versicolor, which is also called pityriasis versicolor, is not painful or contagious.
The fungus that causes tinea versicolor can be found on healthy skin. It only starts causing problems when the fungus overgrows. A number of factors may trigger this growth, including:
- Hot, humid weather
- Oily skin
- Hormonal changes
- Weakened immune system
Just fuckin great.
Have a damn good weekend.
